[Condor-users] credentials and bad passwords (Windows 7)

I have two Windows 7 machines in my test pool, running condor 7.6.5. One is the server, and one the client; both machines show up in condor_status; read and write permissions have been set correctly in the condor_configs. When submitted from the server, jobs complete just fine.

I understand that for the *client* to submit jobs successfully, appropriate credentials need to be stored on the server.

However, anything I try using condor_store_cred add (either on the server directly, or by "sending my password in the clear" from the client using the -n and -u flags) results in a "bad password" error.

I suspect that there may be an issue with workgroups and users, but I can't find any documentation on how to solve this. In addition, it would be extremely inconvenient to have to, for instance, create a new user (in the OS) on the server every time a new client user wants to submit.

Any ideas?

(I have written about this kind of issue before, here: https://lists.cs.wisc.edu/archive/condor-users/2008-August/msg00070.shtml but did not get any replies. I would really like to get this to work, however!)
